(Opinion…hopefully not too political)
Yesterday I was a grouch,
When I see injustice, hollered OUCH…
While millions line a leadership pouch.
Sob stories for Palestine
Have always been popular lines…
Our media see
But ignore between propaganda lines.
Children who’ve lost parents
Are used to find knights-errant…
Of dubious mind
Who willingly blind
Themselves to what’s readily apparent.
Children are hid behind
Or made to suffer next time…
Put in the way
Of danger each day
To satisfy anti-Israeli crimes.
Enough money flows into Gaza
For many shopping plazas…
Yet the people see
Except for suicidal data.
Why should we believe in hate
Going back centuries to relate….
In the real God’s hands,
Not making their citizens bait!
This tit-for-tat isn’t right,
The world’s yet to see the light…
By other Muslims’ eyes,
As dirt and encouraged to fight.
Israel’s citizens are free,
Jew or Arab, both have dignity…
Are not destroyed–hence
Each religion can save its history.
Of the suffering, leadership coffers,
Should open up with healing/helping offers…
If all the money given
Were released to help the living,
Both sides would have mighty few scoffers!
But you know that really won’t happen,
Power is too precious for tapping…
From suffering now swollen,
Too busy riding herd on Israel’s scrapping!
